EDITOR’SNOTE We know things have changed. But how much they’ve changed, we won’t know for a while. The results from our Reader Survey are in, and we’re doing a direct comparison with questions we posed in 2019. That will give us an idea of changes in salaries, rentals and general reader demographics – so keep a lookout for those online. This month, we talk to a “youngie” about his journey towards being an F1 racer. And we follow an inspirational bike ride to raise money for cancer research after a couple lost their little girl to leukaemia. Also, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month; we have features on that topic too. In the midst of a pandemic, it can be easy to forget that cancer and flu and are still the main killers. According to the MOH, in 2019, over 28 percent of deaths in Singapore were from cancer and 21 percent from pneumonia. The upshot of this is that general health should be a priority at all times. And, that includes our teeth – which is why we’ve also got a couple of dental articles for you to check out in this issue. On to happier things now, and if you love shophouses as much as me, you’ll enjoy this month’s visit to a London-born expat’s home in Joo Chiat. It’s arty and lovely, and it ties in well with our art theme. There are bespoke jewellers and recommendations for wrinkly eyes too! For future travel planning, we check out a few of Southeast Asia’s most impressive caves to visit, startingwith a giant one in Sarawak – it looks amazing! And for carnivores, there’s a roundup of great steakhouses and a couple of butchers to try. Plus a groovy new bar!

We’re not in an ideal situation, but let’s make the most of it!

I think the Singapore shophouses are so special!
